Would you mind watching over a space for us, we do have them booked after all.
Next daft question, sorry! Do you park cars between, or in front of the tents? How do you keep the places, just with the fences? When you jet off to other bits of the circuit... Smiley
Perdu, yes no probs, you may need to remind me nearer to June.
We tape off our entire pitch and lift the tape to slot the cars in and out.  You can get this sort of stuff from hire shops or B&Q etc.

Did it one year and seem to remember that heading south for a bit out of Calais then spearing off south-west through the likes of Mantes and Dreux was a pleasant trip.  

Mark, I would be interested in your route as we've used the Calais / Rouen and then N138 route in the past and it's getting a bit busy / familiar.

Perdu / Bill

If you are ordering  a  t shirt i can throw in some "tape" for taping off your pitch, Free of charge. I have rolls of the stuff, which my company supply to me. I have red and white or blue and white. Then just get some old copper tubing or a little 1 x 1 wooden battons , cut them down , and hey presto , cheap fencing.

You can then fence off your garage area.
I think you can just about make out what i am saying in this picture. The space next to the van had a TVR in later on Friday.

Steve,
Before autoroute days we used to go cross country from Calais, mainly to avoid Rouen, and some lovely French driving was to be had. I can forward the route on to you if you want, but you'd need to allow 6 hours or so to get there.

Yes please H, we land in Calais about 12:30 and don't anticipate arriving in LM before 19:00.
A route national run would be a good bimble for a 10 car convoy!

After having stuggled through Rouen's road works / traffic / tunnel / rain with raised temperatures for the engine and for me for the last 5 years, I fancy a bit of a change.
Thanks.

Robbo, I have been thinking of having a shirt too, but I'll wait a day or so to see if Nick wants one too. I am making two for us of the car we are going in as well.

Thought we would go down in the Mark, 4 special rocket assisted tandem, note that the force of this projectile has ripped off the front of the tandem.

Steve - can't remember the road numbers without looking at a road atlas, but it goes:

Calais - St Omer - Beauval - Amien - Beauvais - Mantes-La-Joile - Dreux, and then you have a choice of Dreux - Alencon - Le Mans, or dreux - Nogent-Le-Rotrou - Le Mans

From memory, good roads with a lot of nice open sweeping bends - 'twas a good fun drive, by as H says, as it is A/B roads, its a 6-hour run, but IMHO much nicer than the autoroute via Rouen

BSA first stood for British Small Arms, a manufacturer of rifles etc.

Have a look at the badge........2 crossed rifles.

It really is quite amazing when you look at some of todays companies and then you look at how they started.

Many companies still have many outlets. Daewoo for instance. Cars (if you can call them that) TV's, Microwaves and Super Tankers!!!

Mitsubishi. Cars, Home Electronics and Banking!!
